Deadline is reporting that Maria Bakalova, Pico Alexander, Asim Chaudhry and Lucas Bravo are set to star in the romantic comedy The Honeymoon.
The film focuses on Englishman Adam and his American bride Sarah as they are set to embark on the romantic honeymoon of a lifetime in Venice, Italy. But when the newlyweds’ trip is gatecrashed by Adam’s excessively needy best friend Ed, it inadvertently turns their perfect lovers’ holiday into a complete disaster.
Maria Bakalova released a statement about the project saying:
This film intrigued me because it’s an escapist comedy that put a twist on the classic buddy movie format by including a strong female character, particularly from Eastern Europe. I think after almost two years of this pandemic, we’re all looking for something to lift our spirits and help us mentally escape our apartments. Very glad to be on the producing team of the film as well.
Filming is currently underway in Rome and Venice, with the film hailing from Italian firm Notorious Pictures and UK’s Tempo Productions. The film is being written and directed by Dean Craig, while Guglielmo Marchetti and Piers Tempest serve as producers.
